Every day is an opportunity for a fresh start. Here's how I plan to get and stay creative.
Sit with the Creator
If you’ve listened to the podcast you know what an impact regular, intentional worship, reading and listening time has had on my daily life. Shocking, I know. Still, it is at the top of my list again. I want to have much to give, but I’ve learned everything that’s worth giving comes from God.

Mental, spiritual and physical health are often deeply intertwined and I can usually draw some pretty straight lines between my daily habits and my level of creativity. Basic exercise and healthy rhythms keep the mind and heart fresh. I need breaks but I’ve got too many ideas that need to be fleshed out to sit around and watch Netflix all the time. Speaking of ideas…
Like most musicians, I can be pretty scatterbrained. Simplifying my plans into actionable steps keeps my creative juices flowing. Dr. Leo Marvin was right, it’s all about baby steps.
Trust the Process
Nobody feels brilliant all the time. Creativity usually comes in waves. Rather than fret and worry, trust the rhythm. Just make sure you’re ready to catch that wave when it hits again.

Learning stokes the fires of creativity and this year I’m going to take advantage of my own website and learn to play the drums. They’ve always been such a mystery to me but with the breakdowns on Worship Artistry I’m able to wrap my head around some of the ideas. I’ve already been through a couple lessons and I’m fired up to keep going.
I hope you have a creative year and that we at Worship Artistry are able to support you in the ways we can. We’re cheering you on.
